Left ovary removed due to cyst, liver hemangioma detected. Ultrasound did not detect it. Could it be cancerous?

Hi,I m a healthy 46 year old woman and about 2 months ago I had my left ovary removed because I had a large cyst . Doctor removed the cyst and the ovary. During the surgern he came across a liver hemangioma which at the time he said not to worry about. I have the picture of the hemingioma. A moth later I went for my follow up and he sent me for an ultrasound which showed did not show hemingioma. He now wants me to go to an oncologist for a second opinion. I m very concerned because why now? I also had a pelvic ct scan with contrast and nothing showed up there either.

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
If there was nothing on ct scan then i doubt that there is any lesion on ylour liver. surgeon may have seen soemthing like heamngiom but it could have seen just darker part of liver or he jsut saw sometzhing else. so i think that you shouldnt be worried,just have regular lft check ups and watch for any new symptom.
Wish you good health. Regards
